Updated review of 3 Scott towels:
Over time I have purchased 3 different versions of the Scott multi-fold paper towels and happen to have a package of each for comparison, Scott # 01840, 01801 & 01804. I'll copy this review to all three products.
# 01840 A packet weighs 14oz. It is stronger/stiffer and best suited for wiping off our work equipment. I am still ordering it for that purpose.
# 01801 A packet weighs 18.5oz. It Is not bleached, is thinner as others have noted, but I found it was fine for drying hands and general purpose use. I'll continue to use it in the restroom and eating area.
# 01804 A packet weighs 13.6 oz. It is thinner and softer than 01804, works fine for drying hands and general purpose use but I don't like the way it clings when wet - it reminds me of a face tissue. Of the three it is best suited for wiping if a stronger than tissue paper is needed. I won't be reordering.
Original review: Comparing Scott Towels with Georgia-Pacific
Well maybe I don't love paper towels but I use a lot of them and I care a lot about how well they work. Comparing Scott Multifold Paper Towels (01804) with Georgia-Pacific 21000 Signature 2-Ply Premium Multifold Paper Towel, the Scott paper towel works much better. That is to say they absorb better and are stronger. See the pictures to compare (sorry they are a bit dark), the Scott towel package is bigger and is firm; the Georgia-Pacific towel is fluffy i.e. less dense. Fluff may fill out the box but it didn't help absorb water.
